Nanny 911

Have any of you ever seen this? I was watching Arrested Development (with club sauce) while I was working and not really paying attention to what came on next. After 30 minutes of Kitchen Confidential, this show came on that I have never seen before -- Nanny 911. For those that don't know, they profile a family that is having problems with their kids, and then call in a professional British nanny to observe the family and make suggestions.

If there is any argument for neutering unfit parents, this show is it. These parents are the worst examples of parenting I've ever seen. Choice quote, from the Dad: "I never thought parenting was going to be this hard. I don't get to do anything I want to do anymore, like ride motorcycles, play pool and go to bars."
